George married Brenda Rasmussen on August 24, 1971 in the Salt Lake Temple. They had two wonderful sons, Richard and Ronald.
George was passionate about reading and always learning. His other passion was BYU Football. (It doesn’t mean he wasn’t a “UTE” fan though.) He enjoyed taking his sons to BYU Football games, fishing and baseball games. He loved attending both of his sons’ sporting events and supported them in all of their activities.
Survived by his wife, Brenda; sons, Richard and Ronald Davis; brother, Michael; sisters, Patricia Bartholio, Judy Bawden and Janice Christison. Preceded in death by his parents, brother, Fitzhugh and sisters, Joyce Rippon and Marjorie Davis.
George was always a very compassionate and giving person, helping those less fortunate than himself. We love and miss you!
